If you want to learn how to pray, there are two main things you should do. First, you learn to pray by praying. That's the most basic step. Open your mouth and start talking to God. If you come in Jesus' name with a sincere heart, He will not turn you away. Second you learn to pray by listening to others as they pray. For new Christians, this may be the most important step of all. We tell new believers to get in a group and just listen as others pray. Soon you'll know how to pray yourself. You learn by doing and by listening. And one of the best ways to do this is to study the great prayers of the Bible.
